LETTER: Post Office move will not serve residents of Calow

I noticed the proposal to relocate the post office in Calow to the Royal Hospital, but what caught my eye the most was the spin placed on it by Royal Mail that it would serve the needs of Calow.

LETTER: Can you help save Chesterfield Civic Society?

Formed more than 50 years ago out of public concern for a better Chesterfield and conservation of the town centre, the Chesterfield Civic Society has an illustrious past. 
Highlights are helping to save the historic town Market Place from development and later the award-winning conservation of the Eyre Chapel. 
In recent times it persuaded the council to direct Lottery funding to facilitate the reinstatement of railings around the Crooked Spire church and to extend the town-centre conservation area. 
The society has also contributed to public landscaping, George Stephenson’s statue at the station, and provided commemorative blue plaques as well as running a programmes of talks. 
It campaigns for a more attractive town centre and for a better deal for pedestrians. It is not always successful but it can help make a difference by raising awareness of civic issues and working with the council and others to make our town a better place to live and work.

LETTER: Devolution deal will bring economic boost

LETTER: Devolution deal will bring economic boost

What a furore there has been. The debate surrounding Chesterfield Borough Council’s application to remain within the Sheffield City Region enterprise partnership and seek full membership has similarities with the recent EU referendum in that punchlines and soundbites look to have won the day rather than detail.

LETTER: Cutting wild flower meadow is a lack of common sense

Within Holmebrook Valley Park, there is an area managed as a ‘wild flower meadow’ and Chesterfield Borough Council has to be congratulated for the creation and management of this area.
So why destroy it before it has completed its original objective?

Gloria De Piero MP

I would like the roughly 70 per cent of Ashfield voters who voted ‘leave’ in the referendum to be aware that Gloria de Piero is backing Owen Smith for the Labour leadership.

EU

LETTER: Brexit decision has been made - get over it

So Owen Smith claims that he is going to keep Britain in the EU by potentially blocking Brexit in Parliament if he gets to be leader of the Labour Party.
There is no need for a vote by MPs in Parliament because the public has already made that decision. 
Does he think by saying that he will be elected as leader of the Labour? He must be out of touch with the Labour voters because I believe it was they who swung the vote to leave the EU.
Just look at the last Welsh leader of the Labour Party, Neil Kinnock. Making silly remarks like that Mr Smith, you will be finished in British politics like Neil Kinnock.
You people need to realise that the decision has been made to leave the EU and there is nothing you can do about it, so get over it. There’s probably some good causes in Wales that could keep you occupied.

LETTER: Chesterfield won’t miss Chexiteer

Thank goodness the writer of the whinging, whining ‘ Chexit’ letter in last week’s Derbyshire Times does not visit Chesterfield any more. I certainly hope they have found what they are looking for elsewhere, probably in Camberwick Green or Trumpton.

Why does The Derbyshire Times give prominence to the depressing diatribe of ‘Chexiteer’, who immediately loses credibility in my view for choosing anonymity. I do not seek that cloak.
